Sanders Theatre this evening will see the second official event of the Tercentenary Program of 1936 in progress, and President Conant speaking on "Harvard Present and Future"; his main thesis will be, "should our privately endowed universities be maintained in full vigor."
Jerome D. Greene '96, director of the Tercentenary and secretary to the Corporation, will fittingly be the chairman of the meeting, making the opening address at 8 o'clock, and introducing Mr. Conant.
All seats in Sanders Theatre, except for a small number reserved for guest of the University and members of the faculty, will be open only to students in the College and the Graduate Schools.
Mr. Conant will restrict his speech somewhat to the present and a justification and explanation of the worth of United States, but prophecy will, however, occupy part of the address, and Mr. Conant will touch on academic freedom and the quest of truth.
Members of the Pierian Sodality and the Glee Club will fill out the program with a selected group of pieces, concluded by Chadwick's "Praestat hoc nobis."
After the meeting in Cambridge which begins at 8' o'clock, Mr. Conant and Mr. Greene will journey to the Boston studios of station WBZ for a repetition of the speech for the benefit of Harvard Clubs throughout the world. He will give only the latter part of his speech over the air, however, which treats academic freedom, the fluidity of endowed funds, and the quest of truth.
This meeting will mark the anniversary of the birthday of President Eliot.
